Web Hosting ToolsDublin, Ireland – Due to strong growth in its mobile broadband service Ireland’s fastest growing mobile operator, 3, has expanded its internet capacity in record time by engaging Europe’s foremost provider of mission-critical, high performance networking solutions – euNetworks (SGX: H23.SI).

euNetworks (SGX: H23.SI) demonstrated the power and potential of its ‘on-demand’ delivery claims by delivering a 1 Gbps (Gigabits per second) euFreedom Ethernet service to 3, in only 3 working days. The connectivity was to increase 3’s Internet capacity, demand for which has been created by epic growth in 3’s Mobile Broadband service. The service connects 3’s Dublin datacentre and Telecity Dublin, where 3 connects to Dublin’s INEX (Internet Neutral Exchange) and where additional Internet connectivity has now been opened up.

David Hennessy, Chief Technical Officer of 3, stated ‘We have witnessed phenomenal growth in our mobile broadband service as consumers seek out affordable and reliable mobile broadband.
